B2B-Commerce in construction and the industrial B2B market

IntelliShop Constructional Engineering

The construction industry and the industrial B2B market are currently undergoing fundamental changes. The traditional, multi-tiered, indirect sales channel to the (commercial) end user is rapidly becoming a thing of the past in today’s online trading-oriented world. With such a wide range of products and product variations on offer, a well-positioned, well-organized product catalog is key. Both manufacturers and wholesale traders have embraced sophisticated e-commerce service offerings and are providing affiliated specialist retailers with store systems or digital brand and themed areas, including up-to-date product range data. In the process, the contractor/tradesperson is evolving into a mere service provider for the end user.

  • Wide range of product variations which requires special navigation

  • Major clients, in particular, think in terms of projects and are looking for collaboration tools

  • Classification and catalog exchange formats such as BMECat, profiClass/eClass are a requirement

“A capacity for integration is one of our most crucial requirements. We can now integrate our resellers’ ERP systems via web services that we define, and the NORDWEST E-SHOP can even be integrated into major clients’ SAP systems by means of OCI interfaces. The interfaces have been really well received, and the flexible concept has certainly proved its worth!”
